The Philadelphia Eagles are one of the most iconic sports franchises in America.

Founded in 1933, the Eagles have won four NFL championships, including Super Bowl LII. Reggie White, Donovan McNabb and Brian Dawkins rank among the team’s all-time greatest players, and Jalen Hurts, DeVonta Smith and Fletcher Cox highlight the current roster. No fewer than 24 figures with ties to the Eagles franchise are enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, including Steve Van Buren, Harold Carmichael, Cris Carter and Terrell Owens.

Considering all of the above, it should come as no surprise that the Eagles boast a number of celebrity supporters. With that in mind, Eagles Wire salutes 11 of the team’s most famous fans below.

Actor Bradley Cooper inherited his Eagles fandom from his father as a child in suburban Philadelphia. The star of “The Hangover,” “American Sniper” and “A Star Is Born” didn’t have to stretch too much to portray a diehard Eagles fan in the 2012 movie “Silver Linings Playbook.” Cooper, who has attended multiple Eagles games over the years, was a guest of owner Jeffrey Lurie at Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis.

He famously addressed the team during its visit to Southern California in December 2017, giving a stirring speech and taking photos with players.

Comedian Kevin Hart has spoken about his love for the Eagles in many interviews over the years. He infamously tried to sneak on stage during the Super Bowl LII trophy presentation — but was turned away by security despite his A-list status.
